Afghanistan have confirmed they will play Ireland in a T20I series in India this March.

It is scheduled to be held from 6th-10th March at the Greater Noida Ground in Uttar Pradesh, India.

The series will be used for both sides as they prepare for a bust T20I season, culminating in the T20 World Cup in Australia.

It's disappointing there are no ODI's scheduled, especially as a planned series in Ireland this summer was cancelled for financial reasons.

Ireland are currently in the West Indies playing a six match white-ball series against the hosts.
